COVID-19 is known to cause some people to lose taste and smell, and to instill "brain fog," as well.

Now, new research published in Cortex, links it to face blindness – or prosopagnosia -- the inability to recognize faces. [MedScape] 

"Self-report survey data from 54 respondents with long COVID showed that a majority reported reductions in visual recognition and navigation abilities," researchers wrote. "COVID-19 can produce severe and selective neuropsychological impairment similar to deficits seen following brain damage, and it appears that high-level visual impairments are not uncommon in people with long COVID."
